IF YOU SEEK AN EXCELLENT fit for your horse and an effortless ride for yourself, this is the saddle you are looking for. Why make your horse suffer an "almost" fit when ours fit so well that riding becomes a true joy? We've fit all types of equines including arabians, gaited, mule crosses and drafts, improving their lives and way of going.
MOST SADDLES ARE FIT to a standing horse and then assumed to fit when they move, but the back shape can change dramatically. Gimmicks are used to address this but can cause other issues. Our trees are made to accomodate the changes that happen with movement. But that's only one reason why we're different.
NOT A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL saddle, our trees are made to fit real horses. Using information from years of custom fitting saddles, our tree design comes from the actual shapes of many horses, not some saddle tree maker's standard generic idea of what should fit.
WE MAKE OUR OWN CUSTOM GROUNDSEAT to support the rider's pelvis and shape the saddle seat to perfection. Both horse and rider benefit from our extremely comfortable, balanced seats and they really notice the difference!
OUR CUSTOMERS love how our saddles ride and give feedback:
*One rider who has chronic low back pain told us that when she starts to hurt, she saddles up, rides for a bit and the pain stops!
*Dr. Mero, veterinarian and distance rider, commented that this is the ONLY saddle she's ridden that she finds balanced at every gait.
Jon, a gaited horse rider in Utah, says "my horse is just blossoming, with movements that you would normally just see in a horse without a saddle. Your saddle is making it all possible!"
Another commented, "This is how riding is supposed to feel!"
OUR UNIQUE RIGGING self-adjusts to pull at a slight angle and never moves the saddle out of position. It works with your horse to be in the perfect spot every time. Works great with our mohair cinch.
SHORT LENGTH: a 15" saddle tree is 20 inches long, a 16" is only 21 inches. (We can pair larger seats with shorter bars). Our trees have a very efficient and larger actual weight bearing surface area when compared to other similar length saddles.
LIGHTWEIGHT: Classic saddles with english leathers and foam skirts are about 14 pounds, without stirrups. People are always amazed at how light our saddles are!
CUSTOM ARTWORK can be added to personalize your saddle in a unique way. From edge stamping to realistic roses to something really unique, share your ideas with us and we'll make it happen.
